Review Copy Provided By: TLC Book ToursA heartwarming novel about friendship, family, and finding love in the Facebook Age—not to mention the perils, pitfalls, and dubious pleasures of being a modern young single woman—from Erin Duffy, the author of Bond Girl.
Six months ago, Abby's life fell apart for the entire world to see. Her longtime boyfriend-turned-fiancé, Ben, unceremoniously dumped her—on Facebook—while she was trying on dresses for the big day.
When the usual remedies—multiple pints of Ben & Jerry's, sweatpants, and a comfy couch—fail to work their magic, her best friend, Grace, devises a plan to get Abby back on her game. She and Abby are going to escape Boston and its reminders of Ben and head to Newport for the summer. There, in a quaint rented cottage by the sea, the girls will enjoy cool breezes, cocktails, and crowds of gorgeous men.
But no matter where they go, Abby and Grace discover that in this era of social media—when seemingly everyone is preserving every last detail of their lives online—there is no real escape. Dating has never been easy. But now that the rules are more blurred than ever, how will they find true love? And even if they do, can romance stand a chance when a girl's every word and move can go viral with a single click?
Review: This cover is a reminder that there are some books out there that you must go to a beach to read. This is one of them. I really wish I could have been sitting in the sand enjoying this book.
Its very modern chick lit. Can you imagine getting dumped on Facebook?
What kind of douche does that?
This is a story of love in the modern social media age, where everyone knows, or at least thinks they know, everyone's business.
Erin Duffy has a really breezy fun writing style that makes it easy to keep turning the pages.
